Who qualifies for weight loss injections?


When it comes to qualifying for weight loss injections like semaglutide or tirzepatide there are certain criteria you must meet, and there are some conditions that may be contraindicated, which means that you may not qualify even if you meet all the qualification criteria. If you are thinking of getting weight loss injections it is important to discuss all your current health conditions, medications, and your family medical history so your physician can help you determine what medication is going to be best for your situation and long-term goal outcomes.

Some important criteria to keep in mind before your appointment is that to be eligible for weight loss injections you will need to have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher to be considered. There are situations where your BMI does not have to be 30 or above, and this is if you have a BMI of 27 while also having another condition that can affect your weight like diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol as these conditions can make weight loss difficult. This is why going over your current medical history, family medical history and your current medications is important before getting a prescription as you may be eligible even if your BMI is not 30 or above, however, do not be disappointed if you are not eligible as your doctor may not see any potential risks to your overall health.

What is the best medical way to lose weight?


Since there are many different methods of medical weight loss, determining what is the ‘best’ is going to be based on the individual rather than a specific method that is going to work the same for every person who uses it.

Medical weight loss can include things such as bariatric surgeries, intragastric balloons, weight loss injections, nutrition coaching, and meal-replacement programs. When it comes to medical weight loss if you are eligible and decide to use weight loss injections your doctor is also going to recommend nutrition changes and overall eating changes, since the best results are those experienced by patients who make an overall lifestyle change when it comes to food and exercise.

How much do weight loss injections cost?


When it comes to the cost of weight loss injections there can be a wide range of pricing, however, you should remember as your dosage increases while using weight loss injections the cost of your medications will increase. The cost can also be dependent on the brand and type of weight loss medication you are using, as they may vary by as little as a few dollars to a few hundred dollars as the starting costs of weight loss injections can be as little as $800 per month or more than $1400 per month. Speaking with your doctor at your appointment to be able to get a general idea of what to expect your monthly costs will be best, as they will have a general idea of what you should expect your costs to be at the start and how much your monthly cost will be once you are at a full dose amount.

Does insurance cover weight loss injections?


Speaking to your insurance company before you have gotten a prescription is important, as they will be able to help you determine if there is coverage for your weight loss injections or how much coverage you are eligible for. Depending on who your health insurance provider is, you may also be able to check online to see if medical weight loss injections are covered, what percentage of coverage you have, or even the estimated cost of the prescription after your insurance is used. Those who have insurance coverage could expect a prescription that is normally $800 to be as low as $25 a month, but this can vary based on your insurance provider, the weight loss injection medication you are using, the level of coverage you have, and the dosage amount you are currently using.
